PostHeaderIcon Volvo S60 & V60 Polestar Champion Edition

Volvo took a title win in the FIA World Touring Car Championship this year thanks to the efforts of Cyan Racing and its S60 Polestar TC1 racer. Leading the charge was driver Thed Bjork, who also managed to grab the Driver’s Championship, making him the first Swede to “win a motor racing world title” according to Volvo. In recognition of that, the brand is releasing upgraded iterations of the S60 sedan and V60 wagon dubbed the Polestar Performance World Champion Edition.

What Makes The Volvo S60 And V60 Polestar Champion Edition Special


2018 Volvo S60 & V60 Polestar Champion Edition - image 750586
“These machines come from Polestar, a dedicated tuner and performance company that specializes in making fast Volvos”

Volvo released updates for the S60 and V60 just a few years ago and recently announced the arrival of a third generation for the 2019 model year. That makes these hot-to-trot iterations well timed to take advantage of any renewed interest in the nameplates before the arrival of the all-new models sometime next year.

Luckily, these aren’t some poseur special editions with a little black trim in the cabin and an overinflated price tag. Rather, these machines come from Polestar, a dedicated tuner and performance company that specializes in making fast Volvos. Polestar announced it was becoming a dedicated electric performance car company last October, but before that happens, we’re getting these slick-and-quick four- and five-doors.

“Upgrades were added everywhere.”

Upgrades were added everywhere. Under the hood, Polestar optimization added newfound ponies and torque, with up to 10 extra horsepower and 50 Nm (38 pound-feet) of twist at the top of the heap. You’ll also get quicker shifts and a sharper throttle response. Hard bits include a free-flowing exhaust and sports air filter, while outside, there are new 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance tires, plus fresh styling and aero thanks to a new rear spoiler and diffuser combo. Upping the handling chops are new dampers and springs. Inside, there’s a new Polestar shifter.

“The engineers from Polestar and Cyan Racing have worked collaboratively on engineering developments for existing Polestar road cars for many years,” says Christian Samson, Product and Development head at Polestar. “It’s therefore fitting that we celebrate the remarkable achievement of securing our maiden World Championship by adding more performance to the cars that have been instrumental this season.”

The S60 and V60 Polestar Performance World Champion Editions are offered on all D4, D5, T5, and T6 trim levels, and will head to all markets globally.

PostHeaderIcon Volvo V60 Polestar Is The New WTCC Safety Car

In October 2015, Volvo unveiled the S60 Polestar TC1 race car and announced that it has joined the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) in a partnership with Cyan Racing. With the 2016 season set to kick off on April 3rd at Circuit Paul Ricard in France, the Swedish automaker revealed it will also supply the championship’s new safety car. The vehicle in question is based on the V60 Polestar unveiled in 2015 and will pace the WTCC for the coming seasons, according to a “new long-term agreement” with the FIA.

“Last October we welcomed Polestar’s long-term commitment to the WTCC as a manufacturer. Now we welcome Polestar as the new Official Safety Car partner of the WTCC, an exclusive opportunity which will allow them to promote their extremely safe and high-performing V60 Polestar flagship model around the world,” said François Ribeiro, Head of Eurosport Events, the promoted of the WTCC.

Much like all safety cars seen on the track today, the V60 Polestar WTCC is actually a road-going model with minor exterior modifications that include a light bar on the roof, and “Safety Car” and “WTCC” markings on the doors and engine hood. Modifications are more extensive on the inside, where the wagon received a roll cage, rescue and communication equipment, all built to meet the rigorous safety requirements of the FIA and WTCC. The drivetrain remains unchanged, meaning the wagon uses a 3.0-liter inline-six engine rated at 350 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, a six-speed automatic transmission, and a Haldex all-wheel drive system.

The V60 Polestar will lead the WTCC field ahead of the races and will also follow the pack on the opening lap for 12 events in 2016. The season begins in early April in France and will end in late November in Qatar.

PostHeaderIcon Volvo V60 Edition

In 2014, Volvo launched the second-generation XC90, a vehicle that showcased the company’s new styling language and its new range of fuel-efficient, four-cylinder engines. The Swedish overhaul continued in 2015 and 2016 with the introduction of the S90 and V90, which act as Volvo’s range-topping sedan and wagon, respectively. In the meantime, the rest of Volvo’s lineup has either remained unchanged or received mild facelifts. This will change in the next few years when all its vehicles will adopt the new design and technology, but until that happens, the Swedish brand is trying to improve sales by building various special-edition models. The latest nameplate to receive such treatment is the V60, which will be sold with an “Edition” badge in Europe starting 2016.

Just like any special-edition out there, the V60 Edition received a few extra features inside and out, which should add “an additional splash of dynamism” to the wagon. Customers will get to pick between new colors and wheels, and enjoy a better equipped vehicle with several options now offered as standard equipment.

There’s no word whether an Edition package is planned for the V60 Cross Country or not. Should that happen, the update will find its way into U.S. dealerships as well. Until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the wagon version below.

PostHeaderIcon Volvo V60 Twin Engine Special Edition

Volvo is quite busy these days. From working to revamp its lineup by 2018 and shifting its focus from EVs to plug-in hybrids, the Swedish automaker is elbows deep into reinventing itself. Heck, Volvo even said it wants to start selling cars online and limit its auto show attendance dramatically. But until the company’s marketing turns into a completely digital experience, the Swedes are still alive and kicking at auto shows the world over. Having showcased the unusual S60 Cross Country at the Detroit Auto Show, Volvo joined the Geneva Motor Show to introduce a brand-new hybrid plug-in.

Named the V60 D5 Twin Engine (Volvo talk for hybrid), the new wagon is essentially a more-powerful version of the already familiar V60 diesel-hybrid. In short, the Swedish are broadening their Twin Engine product range, a trend that’s likely to expand. Although showcased as a special edition with limited availability, the V60 D5 Twin Engine will also receive a regular version to be sold alongside the D6 hybrid.
